“From the forest they all came!
Proud of heart, quick to revel!
And their dance, will stop NEVER!”
This has been a long while coming, but I finally finished the rules for satyrs as a DCC race!
The whole thing started with a critical fumble next to a randomly encountered circle of old stones (see Random Encounters, in a Weird World for additional notes on how I run random stuff like that): one of the group’s elves disappeared to the Elflands for a night, and I decided that the fruit of his misadventure would eventually appear, looking for a farther figure.
And he did. After that, the dad spent a while in the Elflands with his son, and I had valid reason to grow him up (since the Elflands run on wibbly-wobbly time, of course).
So, I give to you the rules for running satyrs as a class in DCC. With great thanks to Danny Prescott for the art. I think it really drives the point home.
Double cheers to all,
UPDATE 23/2/2020: I’ve done an extensive rewrite of the class. The patron bond rules in particular have been clarified considerably. This is still one of my favourite articles, even more so now with the changes – what wonders a little playtesting can accomplish!
